GUWAHATI: Amid the ongoing tussle with China at the Eastern Ladakh border where 20 Indian Army personnel, including a Colonel, were killed the boycott to Chinese goods is becoming a reality.
Demand to prohibit China-made materials has been rising for a long time after the rise in tension on the border. In this regard, an electronic shop named Next Electronics has taken a bold decision on Wednesday by announcing not to sell Chinese products in its showroom situated at B Borooah Road in Guwahati. Owner of Next Electronics Abhishek Soni said, "We have removed the Chinese products from our showroom such as Oppo, Vivo, TCL, Haier etc. I feel the business community has a social responsibility and everyone must come forward to stop selling Chinese brands. Being a citizen of India it is a proud feeling to stand up with the Indian Army. It is just a small initiative and all traders across India should take such a decision. We should sell and promote non-Chinese brands." Further, appealing to all citizens, he said, "Instead of writing on Facebook change your products. Next time when you buy make it sure you are choosing a non-Chinese products."
